Planned Giving Program

Major Gifts & Planned Gifts will always be an integral part in providing state of the art technology and excellence in service and equipment for healthcare in our community.

 

Major Gifts
A Major Gift may consist of any corporate or individual donation totaling $10,000 or more and may be designated to a specific department or piece of equipment, if so desired.

 

Planned Gifts
The process is simple . . . the rewards immeasurable.

 

Physicians Endowment Fund
Many of the physicians of the Peace Country Region have taken the initiative and joined together, to invest in the future of quality healthcare and the services available at the QEII Regional Hospital. The “Physicians Endowment Fund” is an investment fully funded by participating Physicians to provide additional equipment that might not otherwise be available. It is truly commendable and reassuring to know that these Physicians are striving to increase the diversity and quality of services that they can provide. This in turn offers their patients the very best medical care available.

 

Heritage Society
The QEII Hospital Foundation’s Heritage Society was established in 1996. The Heritage Society is an esteemed group of people who are respected for their vision and dedication to the QE II Hospital. The QE II Hospital Foundation gratefully acknowledges a donation of $10,000 or more by having the donor’s name engraved on a bronze plaque that is placed on our beautifully sculpted “Giving Tree” located on the Mezzanine in the QE II Hospital lobby. This tree respectfully honors our Planned Gift Donors as Heritage Society Members. The QEII Hospital Foundation thanks our Heritage Society Members for truly “making a difference”.
Leave a Legacy through “planned giving”. Making a charitable gift through planned giving can be very easy and very affordable. Many may be unaware of the significant tax liabilities that their estate can incur which could possibly leave your family with financial debt. Through a planned gift, you can ensure that your estate will benefit from tax advantages, and those tax dollars can be used to benefit your community. The most common planned gifts are made through a bequest in a will, a new or existing life insurance policy, securities, real estate, charitable remainder trusts, and art or cultural gifts. If you choose to take out a life insurance policy as a planned gift, even a small tax deductible monthly premium can become a very substantial gift.

Making a planned gift only validates the magnitude of what you as an individual can accomplish. Take advantage of tax and other financial benefits available to you, and remember that it is available to everyone, and can be designed to fit every budget…You can make a difference!

 

Endowment Funds- Leaving a Family Legacy to your Community
An endowment fund is a permanent fund where the capital is kept intact and only the income (or portion of the income and capital gains) is spent on charitable purposes. It is an investment fund set aside for the long term support of an organization. Many established charities, particularly institutional charities such as universities and foundations, depend upon endowment income to operate.

Being able to create an endowment in your family’s name can establish a tangible and eternal memory of your loved one. We will always be faced with the stringent demands for quality healthcare and an Endowment Fund is an everlasting way to make a difference by ensuring that the latest technology will be available in our area today and tomorrow.
